Number of processors on Edit Settings

I would like to input the parameter in Number of processors on Edit Settings

My personal computer spec is as follows.
Total Cores : 6
Total Threads : 12

Need to I input the number 12 ?

You can set this value to number of logical cores in your machine. So 12 should be fine in this case.

Dear FEAnalyst san,
Thank you very much!

The best way to find the optimal value of this parameter is to test your computer by using different number of cores (in your case starting from 1 to 12) on the same medium size problem. Usually you should not utilize maximum number of cores to have the best performance of the solver.
